Not me but tell us more, what do you use?
used to work with a guy who used to make these out of sheeps horns, once brought some into work and asked me to cut them up for him, I only did one cut and give up when the maggots started dropping out  affraid

Made one out of a broom handle, two years ago when I had problems with my left knee. Now kept in the cupboard just in case!

I've been making them for a few years now.l keep my eyes open looking for likely shanks (sticks).Then I cut them and store them for about 3 yrs before I straighten them. Then the work begins.I like my sticks to have some character and be a little unusual. Anyway, it keeps me out of trouble and is a very satisfying hobby.

You can straighten it by putting it in a vice and playing a hair dryer on the offending bend, get it nice and warm then pull it over straight and let it bend back to straight then allow it to cool.

Yes, it's much easier to do with beech than with hawthorn. I have about 7 0 shanks to do at the moment. That will keep me busy for a while. I like to make them a little rustic and not always straight. I've also started doing a bit of carving on them for a change.

Not too good at carving myself, my "specialty" is a rope twist which can look very good but I go no further than that.

Mark out the stick with the desired rate of twist, cut along the line with a thin blade such as a junior hacksaw, cut from in between the lines into the hacksaw cut with a craft knife, you will soon get the idea as the twist begins to form.  Maybe the picture will help.[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]
